This cairn measures around 22m in diameter and survives to a height of around 1m.
T. Bateman excavated here in the mid 1840's finding a large cist central to the mound in which was a crouched skeleton. A smaller cist within the larger one was also uncovered containing a cremation. On top of these two features were two other skeletal burials, flints and an antler tine.
